Remember the funny comedy show, Married with Children.
The theme song is playing in my head, "Love and marriage, love and marriage, go together like a horse and carriage."
Love and marriage--it's something we all aspire to.
Like in Noah's ark, we all want to couple off and be with that special person that complements us, can finish our sentences, helps us grow and develop and reach our potential, and of course raise a family!
This last couple of days for me the overarching theme has been the importance of a good marriage.
First I saw this funny sign that said, "Get married once, and do it right."
Then the wonderful Rabbi Kaplan of Chabad, here in Downtown Fort Lauderdale, spoke to us about the great joy and "naches" (pride and gratification) of marriage and family.
And once again, when my wife asked this classy lady she met in Florida, how she stayed so thin, the lady responded, "It's the divorce diet."
Ah, eat your heart out baby...that's not the best way to lose weight now, is it?
Anyway, it's a true blessing to find that great match, and when there is an overall healthy relationship built on respect, trust, good communication, and of course being best friends.
I wish I had that (just kidding...). :-))
Perhaps a nice New Years wish is for everyone to find their soulmate and live happily ever after. ;-)
